Music Generation Carlow is a new music education service for County Carlow. It is part of Music Generation Ireland – a national music education programme developed by Music Network and funded by multi-million euro donations from U2 and The Ireland Funds.
This amazing project brings matched funding from Music Generation direct to Carlow, doubling the value of every euro raised here for Carlow MEP’s Go Music! programme. Over the next three years and based on reaching local funding targets, Carlow MEP’s Go Music! programme will, with the support of Music Generation; bring over €1.1million of music performance education activities and events for 0-18 years olds throughout the county. The Go Music! programme was developed by local musicians and music teachers, with foundation local funding commitment from the Kilkenny and Carlow ETB and Carlow Local Authorities, and development support from many other local agencies. The programme is managed locally by Co. Carlow Music Education Partnership (MEP). This interagency group includes, Kilkenny and Carlow ETB and Carlow County Council Arts Office.
